Ahmedabad is more of a business hub but the financial clout, fortunately, hasn't been able to completely overwhelm the splendid sightseeing and tourist avenues that this Indian city boasts of. Ahmedabad is most known for its multiple religious sites. The Sidi Sayyad Mosque is a beautiful mosque that's perhaps the most well-known among the entire cosmos of Islamic emblems. Then there is the superb Hindu temple, Swaminarayan Temple whose structural design is revered by almost all who visit. A range of interesting museums add to the overall appeal of the Gujarati city. Tourists blocking air tickets on flights in order to take in all supreme lures of Ahmedabad must plan a visit to Adalaj Step Well, a wonderful example of Indo-Islamic architecture.
International flights to Ahmedabad land at the Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel International Airport, the major gateway to the city and the nearby areas. The airport is located around 10kms from the centre of the city and the presence of number of transportation modes makes it easy for travellers to move between the two. Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel International Airport is well served by a host of global carriers that connect Ahmedabad to different parts of the globe, including London. The international airport has a wide range of user-friendly services that include but are not limited to banking, dining, shopping and lounging.
Being a popular business hub of Western India, Ahmedabad is well served by dozens of full-service and low-cost carriers. From the United Kingdom's busiest and largest airport, London Heathrow, numerous carriers offer direct/indirect flights to Ahmedabad. Apart from India's national airline, Air India and other Indian carriers like Jet Airways, global operators like Virgin Atlantic, Emirates, Etihad Airways, Qatar Airways and Qantas Airways offer tickets to Ahmedabad from Heathrow. Few of these carriers and some others also offer flights to the Indian city from other airports in the UK like Gatwick and Glasgow.
Considering the fact that a whole lot of tourists and business travellers find themselves onboard Ahmedabad bound flights, it isn't much difficult to understand the blossom of several types of accommodation options in this part of the country. There are five star hotels, four star properties, budget options and heritage hotels. Of course, five-star luxury hotels are the most expensive of the lot. But there is value for money with almost every sort of facility and amenity available to guests. Cambay Grand Hotel and Courtyard by Marriott Ahmedabad Hotel are two such options. Other hotel types are available in numbers too with 4-stars perhaps being the most sought after alternative among visiting travellers.
Ahmedabad can be very hot in summer months (May-July), so it is best to avoid boarding planes during the hot season unless of course, cheap flights are the only criterion for the traveller. The best time to visit Ahmedabad is undoubtedly the period between November and February when the temperatures plummet to the region of pleasantness and offer a wonderful cool climate, ideal for sightseeing. Cheap air tickets may not be easy to come during this peak season so it is advisable to book flights early. A number of cultural events also take place during this cool period.
